The Greatest Race On Keels!
What happens when three camera-toting, YouTube publishing, shameless sailors all drop the hook in the same bay? THE GREATEST RACE ON KEELS!
That’s right, it’s the very first Pineapple Cup Competition. Set in the beautiful Koko Bay in Vava’u Tonga. It’s a clash of titans…a rumble of regular ‘ol Joes battling it out for bragging rights.
You’ve never seen any of us like this before. Raw and uncensored, it’s dinghies gone wild.
When we saw Zatara and Drenched both sitting in the bay it hit us instantly…let’s do something crazy! Because they’re crazy, we’re crazy, why not be crazy together.
That’s when we came up with the idea of a dinghy race. It all came together in less than 48 hours and man was it a blast to film. And yes, Zatara really did win the race. It was a bad track design on our part. We should have made more turns and less straightaways! 😆 Next time!
Speaking of next time, what should we do next? National Lampoons Tonga Vacation?
A big thanks to both Drenched and Zatara for taking the time to make this ridiculous video with us.

Hilarious ! Really funny and well put together. Thanks for sharing this wonderful episode.
You’re all nut-jobs! Loved the fun! Wa-hayyyyy! Xlent!!!!!
You guys are funny! Thanks for the laugh. Sandy bottoms lol.
I thought for sure if would be a Wynn for you especially being fuel by Bourbon. Too much fun you crazy Texans. You might need a “go fund me” video for a larger engine, and a little more jet fuel (👍).
Thanks for sharing!
We’ll drink to that.
That was fun to watch…Luke…hahahaha!!!!!
What fun, that was awsome, really enjoyed it. God bless
(What a contrast to the ever-so-important news’ headlines the rest of the world is awash in daily. May you all resist the temptation of that rabbit hole, need have no bearing on how you’ll live your life today and tomorrow, not your circus, not your monkeys, as the saying goes.)
Left field. It was outta left field!! SuRpRiSe… I was not expecting that.
Awesome- I still can not stop smiling……………:)
very technological challenging video work on this. i wish i could understand how you made this one.
OMG! I still have a grin pasted on my face. That was awesome! I’ve been following you guys for years and that is the most unique video to date. Super job on putting that together. The humor and effects were top shelf.

That was just fabulous. I see a great “most hilarious” video award coming your way.
Nice !!! Funny as Shit
Great bunch of Sailors………
It’s not of you win or loose, it’s how much fun you have. I’m in bed with the flu but feeling much better after seeing the great race.
Great fun! Thanks…
Looks like your Texas redneck heritage has finally caught up with you!! Hopefully though, your next competition will be a Wynn for you both…… Thanks for the fun video!
Hahahahahaah!! Now *that’s* some whoop-ass crazy fun! 😀 But I wanted some credit outtakes of Luke & Sandy trying to keep a straight face during their commentary! LOL
What a surprise that was! Loved it!
I really couldn’t quite figure out who the hillbillies were, I think it came out in all of you!
So much fun to watch, I thought I was there for a moment!
